THE ANCIENT PEOPLE OF NAMIBIA, produced by Akin Esgin and Burak Dogansoysal is an official selection to the 2018 WCFF. This is one of six episodes of the series "Wild Wonders of Namibia". All to be screened at future WCFF events.
The south west coast of Africa is a geography defined by deserts, and resources are scarce. Water is very limited or simply unavailable. However, there are people that have managed to survive such formidable and unforgiving conditions for at least 30 thousand years. The Bushmen who have inhabited these lands forever are one of the few remaining hunter gatherer communities on the planet today. In the short film, we walk for days on endless plains with the Bushmen, hunt and gather by traditional methods, take a peek at the colorful life of the Himba people and witness how the Topnaar have survived in the harsh desert conditions with the help of one peculiar fruit. This is the story of the ancient people of Namibia whose ancestors seem to have left a trace on every grain of desert sand around them.
